Xantia dashboard light control

Post by Rostami » 14 May 2005, 04:56

Hi to all,
Does the xantia have some mysterious potentiomter to control the lightening of the dashboard and instrument panel?
By the way, how hard is it to take the instrument panel out and replace the bulbs? does the steering wheel have to get out?

On my 1997 Xantia,there is a thumb wheel under the steering columb,on the lower cover.It controls all the dash lights & heater/panel lights,but NOT the stereo brightness.That stays the same brightness for some reason.
Not sure about changing the bulbs,never had to.

yup off with the wheel and the battery at least 15mins before u start,
if all the dash lights are off make sure the plug is in the dimmer control as described above coz there a sloppy fit

on the zx and have heard you can do this with other cit's is to just lower the steering wheel to the lowest setting, and you can just ease the dash surround out letting you get the rest out.
